When the Accord Crosstour first came out, I was interested in buying the Crosstour's instrument cluster. It has a classier finish than the Accords, better font and dials, but still is the same box and electronics as the regular Accord. I decided against it when I realized $350.00 just wasn't worth wasting for nicer looking gauges lol!

While I was in the process of investigating the possibility of putting this gauge cluster into my car with already at the time around 25,000 miles, I had asked a dealer how that works when replacing a gauge cluster. He said the true mileage is stored in the ECU, and has to be programmed to the new cluster when a new cluster is installed.

Based on that I would think it would be expensive for any used car dealer NOT under the umbrella of a new car Honda dealer to farce up the mileage. But if it can be done with some simple steps found on youtube that's scary. I mean, I know on the internet there are how to videos on everything including building illegal weapon and making illicit drugs. But I just can't fathom how Honda engineers would make it so easy to fandangle the odometer. That should have gone the way of the do-do bird the second digital odometers and ECMs were engineered into cars.

May 2009 - Present: 2009 Accord V6 6 MT coupe w/o nav, Alabaster Silver

Dec. 1999 - May 2010: 2000 Prelude 5 MT, sold with 220,000 miles and still running great - gone, but not forgotten
